Kate Middleton and Prince William are busy raising three kids and helping Queen Elizabeth run the monarchy. Of course, every now and again they decide to take some time off with just their family (most recently in the Isles of Scilly in Cornwall).
And while we’re already super familiar with the couple’s children, Prince George (8), Princess Charlotte (6) and Prince Louis (3), we're now taking a look at another piece of the Duchess of Cambridge’s inner circle—her parents and siblings (oh, and one very special cousin). You’ll probably recognize the Middletons by name, but there’s a lot we previously didn't know about the royal-adjacent gang. For instance, were you aware that in 1987, Kate’s parents started Party Pieces, a party supply company, when their daughter-turned-duchess was just five years old? Or that they are actually related to Ellen DeGeneres?
